Happy Birthday indeed! :)

This has been such a hectic weekend, fighting with Google to let us post our Simon tributes on our account, but we finally made it. Or I did, anyway; it still won't let Crystal in. UGH, I hate Google. Then the next day I had the Simon death day tributes on the blog and on Tumblr.... And I need to come up with two tributes to other departed actors today.... August 28th-30 is always very busy with tributes.

You know, if you wanted to do a tribute here I wouldn't object.

Btw, I'm still working on your question - I've got one more book to get from inter-loan.

Aww, thanks! :) I've written so many that I think mine are pretty blah by now; Crystal's are much better than mine. We post our stuff here: http://simonoaklandtribute.blogspot.com

And thanks again for trying so hard!

OK, I interloaned 6 books about the play, Bernstein & Sondheim and couldn't find anything. Then I did some research on Arch Johnson who was the original Shrank and drew a blank there as well. So if there ever was a plan to have Shrank sing anything, no one has bothered to write it down that I can find.

Sorry.

Thanks for trying so hard! I guess that will remain a forever mystery. As well as how Simon Oakland got cast in the movie. I wish it was easier to find out information on character actors....

Simon Oakland....Ahhhhh, yes!!
Simon Oakland was fantastic as the bigoted, bitter and cynical Lt. Shrank in the film version of West Side Story. The people who said that there'd never be a film like West Side Story again were right on their money!
